ESPN released SEC Basketball preseason power rankings this week and pegged LSU at No. 4 behind Kentucky, Tennessee, and Auburn. Here's what they had to say about that Tigers.

4. LSU Tigers: Will Wade's team suffered a tragic loss when Wayde Sims, who averaged 5.6 PPG in 2017-18 and anticipated a larger role for the upcoming season, was shot and killed last month. The Tigers will move forward with heavy hearts. But Tremont Waters (15.9 PPG, 6.0 APG) will lead a group with a top-10 recruiting class and a pair of big standouts, Oregon transfer Kavell Bigby-Williams and five-star freshman Naz Reid, in the most promising season since Ben Simmons' lone season in Baton Rouge.
